An awkward location, yet on a saturday night it was pretty happening.
Upon entering, we were seated within 5 mins- Albeit our table was small and could barely fit our party of 5's eating plates. We were nonetheless seated promptly.
We ordered pineapple fried rice, prawn curry, pad Thai and seafood curry to share. The plates the dishes arrived on were huge! But the curry dishes have the same sauces and fillers just different meats. The only thing I really liked was the fact that they quick and very attentive.
The taste of the food wasn't bad. However, it's something I could have done at home with store bought sauces. Granted you get what you pay for. This Thai place is practically the only Thai restaurant in like a 5 block radius. I still expected a bit better. For our dishes we paid about $45 not including tip.
Service here is great! But if you're here because you want to try really good thai food. I would choose another place.

I went to this place upon a recommendation from a friend of a friend who is Tawainese, I was pleasantly surprised!
The restaurant itself is clean, bright and modern. It was bustling busy from the time we got there at 7 and left at 11.
The servers were busy, and we had to flag them down to order, and settle the bill - but that's typical in many Asian establishments.
The prices were generally pretty decent $8 and under range for noodle soups. And $4+ dollars for their bubble tea drinks.
My fresh fruit strawberry bubble tea was fresh and tasty, served in a large beer mug. The deep fried tofu was tasty and came drizzled with garlic/soy sauce. The special beef noodle in spicy soup with dumplings $8.50 was HUGE - the broth was flavorful, but could have used more spice. There was a decent amount of veggies, green onions and pickled cabbage in there too. My friend and I had to take 2/3 or our noodles home, because we we so full. The noodles were linguine sized in width and had great texture.
They also have an extensive take-out menu.

Food: I had the chicken and shrimp fried rice with 2 sauces while my dining compadres had the chicken skillet with garlic sauce that comes with fries, the black pepper fried noodle and the house special fried noodle. The food was tasty and I believe everyone was satisfied - I know I was and I had leftovers for dinner later on! The best part was that our lunch, including tax, only came to $28! I think that was pretty reasonable considering the food was quite good and all of the meals came with a drink. Been here for dinner before too and they have this wonderful vegetarian fried noodle.
Service: It's HK cafe style service where they take your order, you eat and they don't bother with you for the rest of the meal. They don't ask you how the food is or if you need anything - if you want service, you have to flag someone down. Come to this place having this in mind or else you might be offended. The wait staff also have a hard time with english as well so it's much easier to just point to what you want on the menu, say it to them and then have them repeat it.
Ambiance: Nice comfy booths, relatively cleaner than other cafes I've been to. All in all not bad.
Will return as they have really great deals and the food is really tasty. Recommend others to come and try as well but remember that the service is next to nothing here but that's reflected in the low price.
